Did you know the Q in GRID M60-8Q indicates Quadro?. This means Liquidsky users use a maxwell arch Quadro class vGPU, even on gamer plan.
I really do not think GRID tech or which Tesla GPU Accelerator being used is the problem, for now LS devs just want to improve what they have, instead of literally rebuilding everything from scratch again.
There is no denying a well optimised app would work better on newer hardware, but LS doesn’t so is being optimised more before devs upgrade hardware.
Finding out there is not going to be hardware upgrade at all , by means of this thread has been a huge let down for me.
I am obsessed with GRID tech and was uber excited for LS moving to Pascal arch vGPUs.
The really exciting stuff all use Volta arch vGPUs nowadays. Nvidia will be sharing much about Volta arch vGPUs at GTC Taiwan and what this means for HPC, gaming and XR content being delivered too consumers.
So imo, LS need to forget about Tesla P100 and go for Tesla V100, to keep on the bleeding edge of bleeding edge.
Eight Quadro vGPUs powered by one Tesla GPU Accelerator can run apps like the new Star Wars demo made by Disney …
Bit a of a shame that LS seem to be indicating they are not even considering a hardware upgrade just now, especially so when there are many other options than IBM and Tesla P100 open to them.
We tried it, it sucked, Does not mean the hardware sucks. Just means the software used in not well optimised.
The biggest thing Tesla P100 brings over Tesla M60 is better performance at peak times due to Pascal have much lower TDP and other things which help with power management.
I can not help noticing the older Tesla Keplar GPU Accelerators used in old VM, provided a far superior service compared to what we see today.
Watching all the old official LS videos shows a much better LS service was available a year ago
By better I mean the LS ckient looks like it was more configurable and have more features a year ago compared today.
The biggest reason for me too choose LS is because it uses GRID tech and vGPUs.
I am convinced vGPUs are the future of high end gaming and computer generated XR experiences.
The biggest thing wrong LS for me , is the way it handles mouse cursors on android.
Regardless of no server side hardware upgrade coming soon, still very much looking forward to 0.5.0 and watching the continuing improvement of LS service, LS android client and the rise of vGPUs replacing the need for gamers to own high end gaming spec machines to enjoy the best of what PC gaming platform has too offer help show how LS are major contributing factor for helping vGPUs become a realistic option for gamers.
